Daly Insurances & Mortgages Ltd, O’Connell Street, Ennis is a company which has distingusihed itself for its ability to show leadership in terms of innovative recruitment practices.
Gerry Daly was aware that the Ennis branch of AIB had successfully employed a candidate with a disability through Clare Supported Employment. He contacted the Service to see if they could help him. As a result Paul Glennon has been employed as a part-time office clerk with Daly Insurances for four years. Paul started with a one-week trial. This went so well that he was offered the position.
Paul has a physical disability, which manifests itself as ‘brittle bones and short stature’, but this does not impede him whatsoever from working efficiently in a busy office environment. “I feel proud to be part of a great staff team in such a well established Ennis business,” comments Paul.
“Paul has become a very important part of our team”, says Gerard. “While his role is a back-office role, his skill and attention to detail has allowed me to spend more time with clients, with the confidence that items such as scanning, and IT management are dealt with.”
